Anonymous Buyer Bids $19 Million To Have Lunch With Warren Buffett At eBay Auction

After 43 bids at an eBay auction, an anonymous buyer has won a lunch with 91-year-old billionaire Warren Buffett for $19 million.

All proceeds from the “Power Lunch with Warren Buffett” will benefit San Francisco-based charity organization, Glide, which is dedicated to offering refuge and support for the homeless.

The charity lunch, which has been held annually since 2000, except for 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, was first established by Buffett’s late wife Susie, who volunteered for the organization.

This year’s lunch marks the 21st, and last time Buffett will partner with Glide for the opportunity.

“It’s been nothing but good,” Buffett said in a statement. “I’ve met a lot of interesting people from all over the world. The one universal characteristic is that they feel the money is going to be put to very good uses.”

The lunch also marks the most expensive item ever sold for a charity on eBay’s marketplace. The previous record “Power Lunch” purchase was for $4.57 million and was sold to TRON founder and crypto entrepreneur Justin Sun in 2019.

This year’s winning bidder is eligible to bring up to seven guests to join Buffett at the Smith & Wollensky steakhouse located in Manhattan. Buffett is reportedly open to talking about anything aside from his investment plans.
